Allow submission of any file type
If "allow submission of any file type" has been selected in the activity settings, only those submissions that include selectable text will generate text matches and contribute to an overall match percentage. An image file, for example, will not be text matched (i.e. text in images cannot be read).
If the assignment type does not have a file submission, for example an oral presentation or performance, you can still mark the submission and provide feedback to the student by clicking on the pencil icon next to the student name under the Grade column. This will allow your to create blank template to add feedback and grades.
Student and Tutors tabs in the Submission Inbox (are not required)
Students and tutors are automatically linked to the Turnitin assignment when they click on the Turnitin assignment located in the unit. It is NOT necessary to click on the Turnitin tutors or Turnitin students tabs for any further action.
All participants enrolled in the unit will be linked to any Turnitin assignment created in your unit. Restricting access may control who can submit to the assignment, but does not limit the number of students displayed in the submission inbox.
Turnitin does not provide an option for group submission
A workaround for this issue is to identify a lead student and request they submit on behalf of the group. However, grades and feedback will only be released to the individual student who submitted the assignment on behalf of the group and feedback and grades must be shared by the lead student with other members of the group and manually entered in the Gradebook for each student.
The LEO Assignment has a group assignment option. When marking a LEO assignment with group selected, the feedback and grades will be released to all students in the group automatically. For more information about the LEO assignment refer to LEO Guides: How to set up a group assignment.
Allowing multiple submissions before the due date
The Turnitin assignment allows students to submit multiple times before the due date/time to review the originality report and improve the quality of their submission. Students can submit three times within 24 hours and generate a report on text matches, however after the third attempt the student may need to wait up to 24 hours for an originality report to generate. During this time the submission will remain in a pending status.
Allow late submissions
If the allow late submissions setting is set to Yes, those students who have not submitted will be able to submit late. Any late submissions will be marked in red.
Decimal points and letter grades
Turnitin assignment grades are numerical and cannot include decimal points or letters. If your assessment includes decimal points you may prefer to add these manually in Gradebook. If letter grades are required instead, numerical grades can be displayed as letters in your Gradebook.
If you manually add grades in Gradebook they will not appear in the Turnitin assignment submission inbox.
